My mom says it's from France. But then I ask more questions and she keeps making up different countries about the last name's origin.
So can anyone tell me what is the origin of the last name "Byrne"?
I heard it's origin is Irish or something like that. Maybe French?
Where does The last name "Byrne" Origin?
To the best of my knowledge it is Irish and sometimes Scottish. I have never heard of it being French but that does not mean that it is not. It just does not look like a French name. Case in point, it is unusual for a y to be in the middle of a French word. I do not think the letter is even very common in that language.
Reply:Wow, okay, I would have thought that this name was Irish as I have friends with the last name of O'Byrne, However, according to this link it's origins are Norwegian!
